When submitting name suggestions, please use the following criteria:

  • A person who has attained national or local prominence and possesses personal characteristics deemed to be a model for the educational setting

After receiving name ideas, a committee will narrow nominations to a list of three to five names for the School Board to consider.

The School Board will make the final selection in March.
